I know I was blue it was all over.  Even a year later, I kind of miss the planning so I’ve been trying to keep myself entertained by helping to plan families events e.g. birthday parties, baby showers, etc.  I was hoping that having a new house to decorate would keep me busy, but so far I am like I was in the beginning of wedding planning….completely uninspired!  Hopefully once you move in together getting to decorate and build your nest will help wash your blues away!

Wonderful wedding 1 week ago, got back from honeymoon 3 days ago, going back to work tomorrow.  Feeling really low as well- you’re not alone.

I hear it is REALLY common to have a post-wedding depression

I am not doing too badly…but I certainly feel it a little bit. After 9 months of planning…its suddently all over. I find myself feel a little antsy. I had such focus for such a long time…now it’s over and don’t and I don’t really know what to do with myself


I was reading a book that offered some good advice. It says to try to draw out all the fun of being a newlywed. For example…have a party and use all your new dishes and serve ware. I have really enjoyed cooking from our new cookbooks and everynight we eeat off our new plates. Something really small..but it makes me happy


I think it is about changing our thoughts. We were focused on the wedding for so long, that it can feel like a let down. So try to play up all the fun parts of being a newlywed. I plan to like this “newlywed thing” for as long as I can! 🙂

Congrats on your wedding! 🙂 I’m sorry you’re feeling down. 🙁 Maybe moving will help, because it will give you something else to focus on and a place to decorate! That can be your new project! 

I’m really worried that this is going to happen to me. I get depressed just thinking about it being over.
